OWENSBORO, Ky. (WFIE) - On Thursday, the Owensboro Police Department responded to a Southern Little League baseball game around 6 p.m. for an assault against an umpire.

According to a press release, witnesses told officials the victim had been hit by a drunk person.

That person was later identified as 30-year-old Glendle Cain.

Cain was arrested and charged with the following charges:

  • Assault of sports official - 1st offense
  • Alcohol intoxication - 1st or 2nd offense

Officers on scene say they were also assisted by a Kentucky State Police trooper who was at the game.

Southern Little League Player Agent Lauren Patton says the umpire will be fine.

“No major injuries, nothing was broken just badly bruised,” Patton said. “And he’s already the wonderful umpire and the man that he is is already saying he will be back at the ballfield to umpire those kids next week.”

Patton says she hopes this is a lesson for the young kids who witnessed this incident take place.

“In life, things happen and you have to have grace and forgiveness and respect, and hopefully in turn they will watch how we react and learn something on life and how to move forward and just how to be a good person,” Patton said.

Cain is currently being held on a $10,000 bond.
